yep! its ~800 bucks though!



This is what im curious about. I was told you could regulate the boost manually without a boost controller by turning something, like an arm or a screw for the turbo wastegate. Does anyone know of how to do this or has heard about it? No point in making or buying a boost controller if it comes stock!



thanks

You could regulate it manually with a bleeder valve or any manual boost controller off ebay. There are some good ones on there for cheap. On my supra turbo, the easiest way to up boost is to shim the wastegate. Put a couple of washers inbetween it an where it bolts to the turbo which puts pressure on the actuator and won't let it kill the boost as fast.

you can do the same as bikerchris said on a volvo but much easier</P>


Inbetween your block and the firewall is your turbo. There is a heat shield (the piece of stainless mounted horizantally) bolted to the block. First unbolt the bracket on it (2 bolts), then take the remaining 2 bolts off that connect the shield to the block. One has a spring in it (96 turbo), it extends all the way before the bolt comes off so dont worry about trying to catch it. Now that its free maneuver it around the turbo cooling line down and toward the cab &amp; remove it. When u look at the turbo (the red thing attatched to the exaust manifold), it has an arm from the actuator going to the top of the red area of the turbo. Remove the pin holding in this rod then pull away from it and up to remove. This rod is threaded and on the end of it is a piece of stainless screwed onto it with a hole to hook onto the turbo. Spray wd40 or some penetrating oil on the nut holding that piece in place. Once you can move the nut thead it into the pushrod some. Now turn the piece clockwise 3 full turns (the rod will get shorter). Once this is done screw the nut back into place. Pull the rod and connect to where it originally was (it will be harder now) and insert cotter pin. Bolt back on the heat shield and WALA! The boost comes on so much faster now <IMG height=53 src= smileys/smiley4.gif></P>
